Upward Bound is distinguished by a blend of social, academic, and career-focused activities which help teens prepare for life beyond college. Our wholistic approach includes classes, social development, financial planning, and pursuing career goals.
Here are just a few of the exciting opportunities your teen can look forward to:
- campus tours and field trips – our students visit an average of seven different colleges a year
- weekly tutoring and academic meetings tailored to students’ schedules
- field trips, like campus tours; career presentations and job shadow opportunities; and skill-building workshops.
On average, a UB student could visit as many as 7 different colleges each school year!
Plus, your teen will have experience of a lifetime during our summer program. It’s 6 weeks of on-campus living, meals included, at no cost to you. They’ll attend professor-led classes, visit more colleges, experience culturally rich and diverse activities, and do community service with friends. It’s basically a free college test-drive with extra perks.
